Hosted at Leigh & Lowton Sailing Club, competitors arrived to white caps which continued for much of Saturday and with the race course making best use of the full length of the lake, several taking a swim.
Sunday started with another blue sky day, wind had shifted slightly with a little more south in but still a long windward/leeward was set by the race officer.
Great racing at all levels of the fleet, a lot of close competitive trading of places.
Next event on the RS400 Trident UK Northern Tour is Carsington SC on 7 and 8 May.
Next event on the RS400 Rooster National Tour is the RS Sprints, Rutland SC on 2 and 3 April.
